From the Zillow listing:


The Levi Coley House, circa 1848, has been called the most important “Greek Revival” building in Wilton. The most notable features of the exterior facade are the four giant Doric columns and the grand portico entrance that probably looks exactly as it did when the house was built over 170 years ago. The interior of the home is fully updated throughout, but with most of its original architectural character well-preserved, which is obvious from the moment you walk through the front door and into the grand foyer. All of the original wide-plank hardwood floors are fully exposed, and you’ll be enamored by the high ceilings and giant windows throughout the house. The house still boasts five of its original six fireplaces, mostly for aesthetic purposes, but with two still functional. You’ll truly appreciate the well-preserved mill-work and hardware as well. Of course, it’s a fully function modern day home as well, with its fully updated kitchen that includes a 30″ Viking gas cooking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, stylish cooking island, double-sinks, lighted cabinets and wood-burning brick fireplace. There are also five updated bathrooms, including two en-suites, and another in the remodeled attic guest room. Perhaps the most unique feature is the 4-season glass solarium on the sunny south-side of the building, which is accessed through the french doors from the kitchen. A private tour is a must for any historic home aficionado looking to settle in beautiful Wilton, Connecticut.
